As a geothermal feature the Devil's Kitchen is a good alternative to Bumpass Hell. The Devil's Kitchen is a shorter hike and substantially less crowded. (Of course, neither site compares to Yellowstone.) To get to the trailhead, you do need to travel an unpaved road...More

The hike begins with a short climb over a hill, dropping into protected meadows on boardwalks. The remaining trail climbs through the forest, thankfully, in full shade. The trail ends at the boiling waters of Devil's Kitchen. Devil's Kitchen is seasonal and on 7/22/16, the...More

This was a non-strenuous 4.2 mile hike round trip through a beautiful meadow and then through the woods before reaching the river and the hot pots. We saw a bear along the way. It was a great experience, and a wonderful alternative to Bumpass Hell,...More

I first hiked this trail almost 40 years ago. Beautiful views in the Spring/early summer of lush meadows, then shaded green forest. Took my 2 teen boys for the first time and they enjoyed it. Saw more bear sign then I would have liked, but...More

Do this hike as part of a 3-parter - Devils Kitchen, Boiling Springs and Terminal Geyser. When I went there I was by myself and it was quite spectacular.

Didn't make it to the Terminal Geyser, but Devil's Kitchen is the place to go to in the Warner Valley area. It requires about a 4 mile RT hike, but the majority of the hike is fairly easy. Some elevation gain at the end and...More

This is a nice hike (about 2 miles each way) to a thermal area, which is not as large or spectacular as Bumpass Hell, but also is not crowded, which makes for a good experience. The last 3 miles of the road to the trailhead...More

This is in the Warner Valley, up from Chester, not in the major part of the park. But it's a nice, fairly easy hike where you will see mud pots and hot springs. It's a beautiful hike through a mostly forested area.
